The game-changing technology implemented in the Baratza Esatto has been a long time coming. Weight-based grinding has been a long sought-after feature by many coffee fans who were tired of always pre-weighing their coffee dose on a scale. Baratza has finally provided a solution with their weight based grinder, the Vario-W and this grinder accessory, the Baratza Esatto. The Esatto is compatible with the Baratza Maestro Plus, Baratza Virtuoso, and the Baratza Virtuoso Preciso. Once the grinders are attached to the Esatto, the user can set three programmable doses.
- Allows you to grind precise dosages of coffee using real-time weight-based control.
- Minimal dosage variance ensures within +/- 0.2 g accuracy.
- The Esatto uses an easy and intuitive operation panel that includes three programmable dosage buttons and a digital LCD window which displays the weight value.
- The dosage (amount of coffee) can be set to the tenth of a gram.
- Dimensions: 12 1/4" L x 5 1/4" W and it adds ~1" overall height to the grinder.
- The Baratza Esatto can save the home user or barista time by cutting out the need to pre-weigh your coffee doses.
- Reduces labor time and increases overall accuracy with dosages able to be set to the tenth of a gram.
- The three programmable dosage buttons could be set for drink size (e.g. 8 oz, 12 oz, 16 oz) or for brew method (e.g. Espresso, V60, Chemex).
$81.98It can be difficult in the world of specialty coffee to find a brewer that not only looks fantastic but also produces a fantastic product. Eva Solo has done an exceptional job of combining both elements into the Cafe Solo. The Solo seems a little strange upon first glance for the very reason that it may be the first coffee brewer of its kind: one that is clothed. The designers at Eva Solo had the ingenious idea of using the same material that keeps divers warm (neoprene) and wrapping it around the glass carafe... thus keeping the coffee hot during the 4 minute brewing period.
Not only are its looks something to take seriously, but the Solo's coffee is not to be underestimated. Because of its use of "total immersion" brewing (similar to that of a french press), the grounds are evenly and completely submersed in water. This provides extraction that is difficult to achieve by other methods of brewing. It is advisable, however, that once the 4 minutes of extraction is complete, the coffee should be immediately served or transferred into a thermal pot (we recommend one of the Zojirushi carafes). This will prevent over-extraction from taking place which results in a bitter tasting coffee.
The Cafe Solo is unquestionably a unique and exceptional specialty coffee manual brewer. Because of its simple usability and superior design, the Cafe Solo is a force to be reckoned with in the specialty coffee world.
Small, lightweight, and portable, the Skerton is the ideal hand grinder for the traveling coffee enthusiast, or the home enthusiast on a limited budget. The Skerton employs adjustable conical ceramic burrs for grinding any of the wide range of grinds employed in today’s coffee market. It can easily handle anything from fine espresso to a coarse French Press setting. The Skerton’s detachable 100 gr. glass jar is perfect for collecting the grounds, and in combination with the plastic screw-on lid (included in order) can even double as a storage unit for whole beans on those long trips. After grinding is finished, cleaning the Skerton is as easy as placing the unit in the dishwasher since the entire grinder is dishwasher safe.

For most companies it's hard to find motivation for pushing out new products if you find yourself on top already. This is not, however, the case with La Marzocco. The Italian based espresso machine manufacturer continues to push the envelop when it comes to innovations in espresso machine technology. The newest line from La Marzocco continues their progression in the specific areas of temperature stability and pressure profiling. We've discussed the Strada Electronic Paddle version in detail in our Strada EP blog post and listing for the 2 Group Strada EP. The Strada Mechanical Paddle employs technology similar to the Mechanical Paddles on other La Marzocco models but with a few new features including individual pressure gauges, digital PID control, and dedicated group boilers.
